This phone has most of the features as the laptop has. I am also using Garmin navigation and it works just perfectly. VPN connection with Proxy. MS Word, Excel and Pdf files appear exactly as on the pc.
-excellent in-call volume
-Acceptable battery life
-Takes getting used to but after that its quite easy to use - not too laggy either
-SMS writing is a joy (if you have small fingers)
- Slide mechanism is of excellent build quality
-Customisable in so many ways. If there is anything that annoys you about the stock setup, it is very likely that there is a solution already existing to solve it
- tends to heat up noticeably while talking on the phone
- why should anyone have to spend so much time tweaking a phone to get it working to an acceptable level, AND paya premium price for it?
-Charger developed problems after a year - making strange noises
-The different panels are a bit gimmicky in my opinion but some people really like them. I only use 1 or 2 of them on a regular basis
- Build quality of the casing is not flawless on the silver version at least, I can account for the black version. The phone has vulnerable areas in the corners which can develop cracks, most notably the plastic surrounding the stylus holder is prone to cracking. Not a huge problem but not something you would expect from a phone of this price range.
- support has stopped for this phone. I was waiting for an OS update to solve some remaining minor issues and they never came
- keyboard developed some problems after a year
Overall - I was satisfied with this phone and now have the xperia x10 which is superior in all ways except for the very-noticably-quieter-in-comparison in-call volume, which is a bit irritating but oh well!
I don't think this is all that common, perhaps its just my model. Having said that, I won't be getting a new phone as I'm far too attached to this one. It seems to be worth the hassle in the end, I love it and couldn't imagine myself with any other phone to be honest, you can customise so many things to really make it your own and easier to use, the pen doesn't necessarily have to be used, the display is crystal clear, it takes a memory card for my games, music and videos and all the great qualities you expect from a pocket pc. The camera isn't very good, but that's ok, otherwise my digital camera would be useless to me! It's very easy to use, it comes with a guide, but once you've gone through the basics the rest is a breeze to pick up.
Fantastic phone, perhaps I might consider the X2 in the future, clearly i've just been unlucky with my particular model.
